That's a cop out.Again - any young player who is saying "But I had more touches than Murph!" needs to be given a clip over the ear. They need to ignore what other blokes are doing and focus on improving in the areas the coaches are demanding of them. Control what you can control, and anything you can't isn't worth worrying about.
It might be hard, but that doesn't matter. Developing players need to be told again and again not to compare themselves to anyone. Their focus needs to be on getting the most out of themselves, and when they're considered ready their chance will come.
Why aren't the coaches making these demands about improving to the older blokes?
Murphy's playing like a guy who is desperately trying to avoid an injury.
Betts is past it.
You won't be convincing me that Honey isn't ready for a shot based on his 1 game in and out last year.
You will get your wish though.... no way Betts, Levi or Murphy will ever get dropped. They either retire or get injured to miss games.
